"But don't forget that only "skilled drivers can fully exploit the car's potential".  Surely that's code for "it's brutal and will punish you if you push it too hard" and "you'll be very emotional and thanking your lucky stars if you don't end up wrapped around a pole".  I'm guessing this is best kept as a track weapon.


I'd say that was more of marketing code/gauntlet tossing exercise for

"come and have a go if you think you're hard enough"


.... and I'm sure the stereotypical Lambo buyer will puff his hairy medallioned chest out and take it up!

First Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni spotted

The first Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni has arrived at the dealership. Mario from Switserland spotted this tribute to Balboni at a dealership in Zürich. Unfortunately it is only one picture, but because we haven't seen any live pictures of this car we decided to show this anyway.

The Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Valentino Balboni is a special edition of the Lamborghini Gallardo because of the retirement of the fabulous testdriver of Lamborghini. With 550 bhp and rear-wheel-drive this is a monster for the public roads. The special edition can be recorgnized by the white stripe on the car. The LP550-2 can be delivered in different colors, Bianco Monocerus, Verde Ithaca, Arancio Borealis and Nero Noctis and will be produced in limited number.[/quote

How does that price compare with a 560 with the same gear (lift, nav, camera etc)?  And when do they arrive?  E-gear and manual?

The 469 is with the manual, so egear 25 more. Not sure on the comparison with the 560 but the dealer here re-iterated that it isn't meant to be a cheaper model.

Price for a 560-4 with equal gear is about 520k + onroads. Add another 25 for egear.

But then only 250 of the 550s will be made.
